2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft, at <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Places/ShowPlace.asp? Place, Lemont, IL. I have no history with Blatz in my underage drinking or impoverished student days, so this review comes with no baggage, except my surprise at finding it not only on tap, but finding a bar with an old Blatz sign out front. In a pint shaker ($2.25), it shows that familiar pale straw color under a thin macro head. But thereís a noticeable lager malt taste here. Some corn adjunct, but I didnít find it distracting. And just enough bitterness for an uncomplicated finish. Probably never a great beer, probably not the same recipe for generations, but I wonder if, when itís being contract-brewed, Miller doesnít mess around trying to "modernize" it.

12 oz can pours pale with a small white head. Aroma of metal, grains and brief hops. Pretty much this is chill and swill. Stay away!

Lets say grandpa died. We were going through his possessions, and we found a can of this beer tucked away somewhere. For whatever reason we decide to crack it. We say, wow, the head is creamy, and it tastes old, like must, mothballs, mold, etc. Yeah, itís cool to be old-school, but this is geriatric.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2009 Rerate (Finally!): Golden, fizzy. Chemically artificial adjuncty nose. Clean and bready flavor, toasty finish with a hint of indistinct hop at the finish. Very light and easy of course. Touch of fusel?

basically just a different swill.. drank it str8 from the can but Iím sure it was a clear light yellow like all the swill.. the smell was managable the taste dealable but far from anything Iíd want to drink. Chalk this up to swill of the week at cans.

A tasty beer. It doesnít taste all that great. But it tastes like something, though. It tastes like beer, damnit, good ole ímerican beer. Better than most cheapo lagers and some premiums too. It might be yellow and fizzy but at least itís memorable.

Suprisingly Iíve never rated it, and just had it on tap again at the Crystal: Poured clear golden. Malty as hell with a huge white head. GRainy in every bit, not classy but grassy all the way through.

GABF 2004 Light golden in color with a small white head. Aroma is of nothing,very clean, as is the flavor. Nothing offensive or exciting.

This was only a step above generic beer in the late 70ís. Iím glad I have not been desperate enough to buy this since I got out of school and got a job.
